I was shocked to read about the ongoing problems with the life support computers onboard the International Space Station. Every time I hear of problems up there, I feel a serious rant coming on.
I grew up on science fiction books. In fact, I would have to say that the vast majority of my childhood was spent far away from this planet. Suffice to say, I am a serious supporter of space exploration.
But this madness with the ISS is about more than I can take. Between the noise, the need to keep reboosting its orbit, and the lack of any real scientific value, we really SHOULD abandon ship at this point!
